Jurgen Klinsmann stresses importance of U.S. getting strong start at Gold Cup

USMNT's captain Michael Bradley, Greg Garza, and Omar Gonzalez speak ahead of their Gold Cup opening match against Honduras.

FRISCO, Texas -- It would be a stretch to draw too many parallels between Tuesday's Gold Cup opener for the U.S. against Honduras and last summer's must-win World Cup curtain raiser vs. Ghana that helped propel the Americans into the second round.

Beyond that, though, it's hard to overstate the importance of making a positive first impression at this month's regional championship, with the Catrachos easily the toughest opponent the U.S. will face in the group stage.

"It's crucial in any tournament...

FRISCO, Texas -- The U.S. kicks off its CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign here on Tuesday night against Honduras, with what coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his players hope will be the first of six matches over the next three weeks, culminating with the July 26 finale in Philadelphia. Only a championship will do for the hosts. But while Klinsmann's team enters as the clear favorite, defending its regional title and automatically qualifying for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia isn't a foregone conclusion....

U.S. win big over Guatemala but have plenty of room to improve

The United States cruised to a 4-0 win over Guatemala at Nissan Stadium ahead of their Gold Cup opener July 7th.

Three quick thoughts on the U.S.' 4-0 win over Guatemala in their final Gold Cup tuneup Friday in Nashville.

1. U.S. get lopsided win with room to improve

Anyone who expected the U.S. to come out looking like the team that beat the Netherlands and Germany in road friendlies the past month was bound to be disappointed by the Americans' suspect sharpness in the first half.

The early hiccups weren't unexpected; the five European-based players in coach Jurgen Klinsmann's lineup were coming off their...

U.S. beat Guatemala as Zardes, Yedlin, Bradley shine, while others struggle

The United States cruised to a 4-0 win over Guatemala at Nissan Stadium ahead of their Gold Cup opener July 7th.

In the end, the win was a comfortable one for the Americans in Nashville, Tennessee. The 4-0 victory over Guatemala looks good on paper, but wasn't nearly as easy as the score line might indicate. A few strong performances stand out from a mostly average game across the rest of the field.

Jurgen Klinsmann used all six of his substitutions, giving him plenty to evaluate ahead of Tuesday's Gold Cup opener against Honduras in Frisco, Texas.
